Tax Efficient Giving
Tax efficient giving is available in a number of countries including Singapore, United Kingdom, United States and Hong Kong. For more details on how this would apply to you, please refer to the list of countries below. The UWCSEA Foundation is also working towards making tax efficient giving available in more countries. If your country is not included in the list below, please email us at email@example.com
Tax efficient giving is available for Singapore residents up to 2.5 times the value of your gift. To calculate how much you will be able to claim against your taxes for the January – December 2010 financial year, please use the calculator on this page.
For gifts made after 1 January 2012, tax deduction can only be given to donors who provide their tax reference numbers (eg. NRIC / FIN / UEN).

If you are based in the United Kingdom and are a UK taxpayer, you are able to increase your gift to the UWCSEA Foundation through Gift Aid, the UK government’s programme that encourages gifts to charities. If you have made a gift and signed a Gift Aid form, every pound that you give will generate an additional 28 pence from the Inland Revenue.
Use the Gift Aid calculator on this page to see the difference it can make.
A single Gift Aid declaration can apply to all future gifts you make to the UWCSEA Foundation.
Please print out the Gift Form and mail it to the UWC International Office at:

United States and Hong Kong
The UWCSEA Foundation has established a fund with Give2Asia, a registered 501 (c)3 in the United States. As such, donors who make a gift through Give2Asia here will be able to enjoy a tax deduction off their gift to the UWCSEA Foundation for US tax payers who itemize their income tax deductions.
For donors based in Hong Kong, you will enjoy a tax deduction only if your gift exceeds HKD40,000. Please make your gift via the Give2Asia portal here.
